Kawagoe

Kawagoe is known as little Edo since its old historical buildings are reminiscent of old Tokyo at the time it was named Edo. It was once a strategic location for trade with Tokyo. Kawagoe makes a perfect day trip from Tokyo and will please those who like to walk in a charming neighbourhood and sample local delicacies sold at the many food stalls and gift shops.

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
